Serving Our Community

Community Service

Our community is committed to serving others. We Are Owls for Others. 

An integral part of education at The Woods Academy is learning the importance of serving your community and those less fortunate. Service learning begins in our Montessori preschool program and is carried through to Grade 8. 

Some examples of our service education has included:

  • Montessori preschool students supporting Hotcourses Primary School in Nyumbani Village in Kitui, Kenya in Africa. This school serves children whose parents have died from the AIDS virus and are in need of school supplies. Montessori students work to collect backpacks and basic classroom items, and work together to pack the bags themselves. 
  • Lower School students in Grade 1 collecting books for Christ Child Society, a local non-profit that assists women and children in need. 
  • Middle School students in Grade 7 volunteering with Catholic Charities SHARE Food Program, bagging vegetables for food donations. 
  • All families at The Woods coming together to donate items for Comfort Cases, an organization that assists children in the foster care system. 

With all of our service projects, we aim to educate our students on the importance of giving back and how they can each make a difference in their local community and the world around them. We strive to make it a 360 approach so students are actively learning about the organization they are supporting through hands-on activities.
